KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Top-ranked Kansas hasn’t lost since Baylor stunned the Jayhawks in Allen Fieldhouse in January, that run of excellence driving coach Bill Self’s squad to another regular-season Big 12 title and the top seed in the conference tournament.

Better not let that winning streak end any time soon.

The Jayhawks (28-3) know all too well their next loss ends a dream, whether that’s to win the Big 12 Tournament this week in Kansas City or the NCAA Tournament beginning next week. Kansas lost to Iowa State in the league tourney final a year ago, and didn’t even make the championship game three years ago, when the Cyclones beat West Virginia for the crown.
